    Default Please say there is a way...

    Please tell me I can save the files on this disc.

    Just a moment ago, I was burning a DVD RW disc and it was working fine. I was just doing what I usually do. Just adding files to the disc. It was almost done. Nero Software said the file adding was complete but it was in the process of adding the DVD high compatibility borders. Well my driver, only 2 months old, started ****in up for no reason. It started to make this really annoying ticking/scratching sound. Well Nero Software said burning failed. Well I thought maybe the files I just added won't work. So, hoping, I put the disc into the drive and it says the disc is unreadable.

    Please tell me I can save the files on this disc.

    I have nearly 4 gb of files on it.

    Please tell me I can save the files on this disc.

    if you last resort failed, and just in case it's the drive that have a problem, try reading your disc with different drives..

    No, I don't have the files on my computer anymore, but I did try using another disc that had info on it but it won't read it either. It thinks the disc is blank as well. So maybe I can still save it.

    Now I need to find ISOBuster.

    Thanks!!!

    .... if your player can't read disk which you are sure are good, then it's your player that have a problem.....

    try to read your disk on another player to see if it works or not, and if it works just buy a new player

    Isobuster is the ultimate CD/DVD data recovery tool, so it's always good to have it and it's free.

    Just extract raw and convert to data.

    that option isn't working. here's what it says:



    Does this mean I have to buy the program or register it or something.

    and which part would i want to extract raw and convert to data?

    Try giving the drive a cleaning while your at it. You can try one of them el' cheap 'o cleaner disks, which work in a lot of cases, or you can do what I do and take the bitch apart.

    If you want to go the route I use, open your computer, disconnect the cables to the *-Rom Drive, either remove the screws holding it in place or push in the clips, and pull the drive out of the computer. Now remove any extra attachments to the drive (holders for the slide bay types) and remove the screws that hold the dives cover on (usually on the bottom). Turn the drive rightside-up and remove the cover. Now you may have to remove some extra parts, such as another cover or a bar that sits over the top of the spindle. After that, you should see the drive train, gears, and the laser eye. Take a bottle of isoprobic alchohol and a cotton swab (looks like a long, one sided q-tip) and dip the swab quickly into the alcohol. Now gently (no more force than needed to push the spring down SLIGHTLY) whipe the eye of the laser with the swab. Get a flashlight and look at the laser from different angles with the flashlight, making sure that there is no pieces of dirt still on the lense of the laser.

    After this, you can close the thing back up, or do some more upkeep that I like to do. I get a big tub of grease and a toothpick, and grease the gears and guide rods. You just put a little on there, and spread it around. Not too much, or you'll create blockages by build up. Just enough to put a light layer over the gears and rods.Turn the gears a little to work the grease in there.

    There is one more thing you could do, if absolutly nessisary (meaning this is your second time opening it, as there was no improvement when you put the drive back in), which is re-calibrating the laser. Somewhere in there, you should find a screw, or set of gears that go to nothing that will adjust the position of the laser (raise it, lower it, tilt it... all are a little different). This is a long and painful process, which I can't tell you exactly how to do, as ever drive is different. Basicly, you have to open the drive, set it aside and reconnect the power and data cables to the drive and turn the computer on. You run the computer with the case and drive open, ajusting the calibration, trying a disk, ajusting again, trying again.... on and on. Long and painful process, but can sometimes bring a dead drive back to life. Not for beginners, and its something you have to be very smart about (like if you don't put something (a magnetic top of the bar) over the disk when you put it in, the spindle will spin up and throw your disk across the room (don't you love 52X?). Kind of a last resort option, and not really recomended.
